LANNA PENDLETON HALL
My passion is painting. I am inspired by sunlight and the weather. I take photographs of the sky almost any time of day. I am interested in the most colorful and unusual scenes captured in these photos.
My paintings are usually large oil paintings of the sky painted on stretched linen canvas. I also enjoy creating watercolor and gouache paintings.
I have lived in northwest Ohio most of my life. The land is so flat that I find the sky much more interesting to paint. The sky is always changing, giving me many opportunities for colorful and interesting subjects.
